Carl Jung: “I had the feeling that I was in an over-compensated psychosis.”







Mrs. Zinno: Were these fantasies full of affect?

Dr: Jung: Yes, there was a great deal of affect with them.

As I could see no possible application to be made of them, I thought to myself, “It this means anything, it means that I am hopelessly off.”

I had the feeling that I was in an over-compensated psychosis, and from the feeling I was not released until August 1, 1914.
